Re: Native Client

Thanks. I can see this being very useful, but It's not really going to be a solution for mobile devices where latency is poor. I was hoping to be able to write GTK apps that execute in the browser.

AFAIK (I verg well may be wrong), it depends on the HTML5 canvas redraw. I'm assuming that it's going to be pretty close to VNC speeds as it _should_ only redraw whats changed, and I don't see why it can't employ at least basic compression. I may be miss-over/under-estimating things here though, and most likely am.

I should be testing this as part of our final testing ( on Fedora 15 amd64) in the next week or so though, so I'll let you know if I remember!

This is of course something I'm keeping a close eye on, as most things are going the way of the web these days, and Alexander Larsson is a very interesting person ;)

Have a google of "GTK Broadway", your mind will be blown ;)

Yes I saw that.  It is very cool.  How scalable is it though? Is it like a VNC thing where bandwidth&  latency matter?
